Highly dependent on demand from construction and industrial manufacturing markets, the Paint Wholesaling industry has performed well over the past five years as construction activity rebounded, homeowners boosted spending on home improvements and other key markets, such as the automotive and machinery sectors, increased demand for industrial coatings. As these markets continue to make headways over the next five years, the industry will continue to improve. However, this growth will be slower over the next five years as wholesale bypass continues to proliferate.
Establishments in this industry wholesale paints, wallpaper, paintbrushes, rollers and other related products. Industry operators purchase paint and other coatings from manufacturers for resale to downstream customers; they do not generally manufacture paint themselves. Retail sales outlets of paint manufacturers are not included in this industry; however, manufacturers’ internal wholesale divisions are included in this industry.
This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
